GMD, hands down. They are much softer and more affordable, which was important to me. :-)

Re: Flips organic or GMD prefolds?

Well I love both since they are so different. The Flip is not a traditional prefold so it really only works as a trifold insert. It's OS so can be used from about 10-12 lbs to PLing. GMD are sized cotton twill prefolds so I can wrap them and pin/snappi/boingo them or trifold. Love GMD but the absorbancy is not even close to equivalent. Flip organics are SO thirsty. I have been able to use them as a very reliable night diaper for all 3 of my children. I certainly can't use one GMD for nights but with a couple doublers it might work. They both have a place in my stash and serve different purposes.

Re: Flips organic or GMD prefolds?

Tough call. I like both for different reasons. Organics will be ever so slightly trimmer esp as baby gets bigger. Organics are more absorbant in my opinion. They ate great for nights too. I have both gmds & organics because an organic is almost too much diaper for my non-heavy wetters for daytime use. Organics are generally only trifolded too. Gmd are sized for a better fit.

It's closest to a red I think. It's divided in 6 little squares though with the idea that you can fold it one way to make it shorter, maybe a little wider for younger babies and fold it the other way and get it longer for an older baby/toddler.

GMD! So soft and fluffy, and more breathable. The flips just seem heavier or more dense. Not as trim as I thought they would be.
